We're excited to offer this one of a kind car which is full of custom details, and finished to a high standard. It's not quite as radical as one of the custom, and sometimes spooky, creations that came out of "Big Daddy" Roth or George Barris' workshop, but it has a unique, 1960's radical custom build design. This car is truly a one of a kind build, from the custom paint and plush interior, to the highly detailed engine that is nestled between the front fenders. This one of a kind car would look right at home on the set of The Munsters - the "average" American family with a taste for unique vehicles, and ghoulish gaffes.
The classic shape of the Model T is no stranger to a few nips and tucks, and this car is no different. The highly customized body is finished in a cool color combination of blue with contrasting purple flames. It's capped with a custom purple top that has a moonshine jug outline in place of the rear window. Running boards on either side of the car match the top, and the interior. Brass lights front and rear, etched glass side windows, fuel filler door mounted at the rear, chrome windshield surround and supports, and Cragar wheels wrapped in wide tires at the rear are just a few of the exterior details.
The builder of this custom Ford pulled out all the stops to make sure that the interior of the car is both unique, and functional. The first thing you notice when looking at the interior is the plush purple upholstery that matches the top and running boards, but a look further reveals Stewart Warner gauges, brass spoke steering wheel, and seat belts. A simple, upholstered cover just behind the bench seat lifts up to reveal a trunk/storage area.
Between the flame adorned fenders is a detailed 390ci V8 engine with a mild build. The intake manifold is borrowed from a 427ci, and is topped by a group of chrome Weber carburetors. Many custom details are visible under the car as well. Traction bars, transmission cooler, headers, and in-board brakes are just a few of the main highlights of the underside.
This one of a kind T-Bucket is sure to turn heads with its unique color combination, and detailed engine. It can be enjoyed whether you're from the "old country of Transylvania" with a or just a car enthusiast in search of something unique, this is a cool custom to consider. It's ready to enjoy on a joyride to get ice cream, or for a spooky cruise through the cemetery. Be sure to check out all the photos and video on our main website: Garage Kept Motors.
